So, as you'll know from my previous posts, I was devastated when Adele had to cancel our gig (my graduation present from hubby) because of throat complications/surgery. I cried and felt terribly sorry for myself, cursing my bad luck, as I'd looked forward to that gig for nearly a year. But in an attempt to make me smile again the hubby promised that with the refunded money we'd go see my beloved Coldplay again instead (he took me for my 21st birthday a couple of years ago) once they announced new tour dates after releasing their new album Mylo Xyloto.

Well a couple of days ago I got an email (yes, I'm that obsessed I'm on their emailing list) saying that they'd finally listed 2012 UK tour dates. As I'd got the email on my phone and on my lunch break (which wasn't really a lunch break as I was marking the kids Math booklets) I didn't have time to click the link and view the locations/prices etc and just planned to have a peak once I got home.

Later that night at home I sat down to the computer hastily tapping my fingers as the webpage loaded with the UK tour dates of my boys. Once the page had finally become clear I noticed two horrible, ugly, disgusting words and fought back tears, convinced my bad luck had struck again. The words SOLD OUT mocked me as they arrogantly stood next to all of the UK tour dates. I was miserable. I'd waited YEARS for Coldplay to release a new album and go on tour again only to find I was too late, I'd missed the boat. The rest of the night poor Carl hugging me as my womanly emotions (lack of sleep and stress) took over and the crocodile tears streamed down my face. I was convinced I'd never get to see Coldplay before we move back to Vermont (a place where Coldplay will NEVER come) and that my dreams of seeing them anytime in the near future had been shot down.

That was until tonight...


I finally got an email letting me know that our Adele ticket money was refunded. After which I happily announced "I'm keeping my eye on the Coldplay website and the next tour date added or announced, I'm swooping in like a hawk and buying two of those bad boys!" To which the hubby smirked, grabbed his laptop and started clicking and typing away. It seemed odd to me, but he's always on his laptop so I thought nothing of it, smirked and continued my plotting. The next thing I knew Carl swung his laptop around, held it to my face and simply said 'read.' 
And this is what I saw...

You have booked to attend COLDPLAY at Etihad Stadium, Manchester on Sunday 10/06/12 Gates 5pm, Show Time TBC    

I screamed. I jumped on him. I hugged and kissed him. I cried.
I have the best husband in the world. One who goes out of his way to make me happy and put a smile on my face. I'm truly spoiled rotten and so, SO thankful to have found someone so giving. 

Because of him, I'm going to see COLDPLAY BABY!

I'm only going to get 7 hours sleep tonight because I was so excited I insisted on  blogging this fantabulous news right away...but what the hell! Tired or not, I'm as happy as a clam.
